The Harlem Renaissance allowed Blacks to prove to the racist American society that they are worthy of an education and that they have the right as a citizen to access it. Black culture, literature, music, and art exploded and merged with the current America. These Black artist, writers, and musicians gained recognition and respect from everyone for their talent. Black American citizens were robbed of the opportunity to learn and pursue certain occupations due to their race. The talents they displayed to the nation has given them the chance to a better life, education, and brighter future. They became individuals in the eyes of white Americans rather than descendants of a slave.
Jazz broke the racial barrier between the blacks and whites by connecting them through the power of music. It allows them to live in harmony and see each other as fellow jazz enthusiasts. Many Black musicians grew up in harsh communities, but they built their own foundation through their musical talents, such as Louis Armstrong. America was a nation with a distinct line between blacks and whites, but jazz destroyed those differences and allowed the two races to mingle and see each individual's character rather than skin.
Aaron Douglas was an African-American painter and graphic artist who won recognition from his artworks that portrayed African American life and culture during the Harlem Renaissance. He was respected and was even invited to the White House by JFK. He proved to the nation and his fellow Black Americans that success is possible and their race won't hold them down. His work has inspired many individuals to be proud of their skin and display their own works.
Black Americans were treated as the lower human, but the Harlem Renaissance changed that perspective. Black culture, music, and art merged into American culture through many talents presented by geniuses. In the past, skin color played a significant role in their future, but now the times have changed and skin no longer covers the individual's talent. Blacks became more accepted and the black culture flourished the cities and battlefields. The 1920's became the first and best human experience in America.
Literature became a weapon to challenge racial oppression and white social norms. The New Negro Movement sparked literary geniuses to protest through their writings. They spread their message throughout the nation by writing novels, poetry, and other literary works. Their works capture the essence of a true Black American and destroying the white portrayal of a black man. This movement restored their black pride and helps them raise themselves up into society.
